[prMac.com] Salt Lake City, Utah - infiniteNIL Software is proud to announce Everport 1.1, an update to their Mac OS X app that quickly and easily imports data into Evernote from 37signals' Backpack service. Everport now requires Mac OS X Lion and adds support for Retina displays such as on the new 15" and 13" Retina MacBook Pros. Everport 1.1 also adds support for OAuth when authenticating with the Evernote API. Evernote recently required this of all apps that use its API and means customer's no longer have to worry about Everport or other apps having access to their username and password. The update also fixes bugs in converting Textile formatting in Backpack notes to Evernote's note format. Textile is markup language and an alternative to HTML.
To use Everport, you simply enter in your Backpack accounts and select the account you wish to import data from. A list of all of the pages in your account is displayed. You can see what is on a page and mark the ones that you want to import. Then click the import button on the toolbar. Everport then tells you what it is going to do so you can confirm it. Everport then downloads the data, parses it, and adds it to Evernote. Everport creates an Evernote notebook for each Backpack page. Each item on the page becomes a note. All the notebooks are then placed in a stack named after the Backpack account. Everport even downloads file attachments and images and adds them to Evernote. Everport also preserves list and their contents, complete with checkboxes.
37signals' is no longer accepting new customers for Backpack and will probably drop support for it in the future. Now is the time to move that data somewhere else and if that somewhere else is Evernote, then Everport is the perfect tool for the job.
